Re: SPRING 2012

Same here Moh and today looks like a rerun. Glass fallen a tad to 30.4" but basically no change. Best hope is that we get a bot of sun later. I don't thing temperature got higher than 10C but no wind so quite pleasant for walking. At last my knee has started to improve so that's a blessing and I can...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Eileen, I think genes and exercise have a lot to do with it. You're right, I am lucky. Moh, good corned beef is a much underrated meat. It's the nitrate content due to the processing that frightens people off. Made another sausage and bean casserole, lovely! Enough left for today..... Fruit for pudd...

Re: ENERGY MATTERS

The common construction of the 'outshut', the range of single storey buildings at the back of a terraced house that includes the coal house and the outside toilet that was common in late 19th C builds was of a lighter, solid stone wall construction and so can never be as efficient as the main house ...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Eileen, dead right. Alexander the Great found the same problem long before the Victorians! We are the latest in a long line of 'conquerors' attempting the impossible. The basic problem is that Afghanistan is regarded as a national identity. It isn't and never has been, it's the home of a large numbe...

I think you've missed the point Whippy. This was sugar weighed out from bulk sacks in the shop and we got the blue bags from our normal wrapping paper supplier. They were plain dark blue paper.

Re: GOOD TV

Whippy, I've spent enough time in auctions to know about 'pulling bids off the wall' and other cunning wheezes. I still think some of the bidding is iffy and you're wrong in thinking it's all right. It's illegal, there are laws governing how auctions are conducted and they are taken very seriously.

Have a look at this link for recycling in India and Pakistan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_breaking When I was in the boiler trade we exported boilers to India in containers. The trade was aided by the fact that shipping rates were so low as many empty containers had to be sent back there. I th...

Eileen, the evidence from my blood test as far as I am concerned is that cholesterol levels in blood depend less on egg and red meat intake and more on genes and how much exercise you take.

Doreen's neat spidery writing is so clear. I have lots of copies of work she gave me. I miss her, mind like a razor. In the mornings Doreen and George retreated to separate rooms after brekkers and did the Guardian crossword in competition with each other.

I know that road well Moh. Spent lots of time round there with the cattle wagon. I love to see the geese flying, we have a good population of Canada Geese all year round in Barlick. Love the way they honk at each other to keep in touch.

I was always fascinated by the cinema names. I remember that when Mac Parker's cinema was bought out in about 1950 the new name 'Essoldo' was a composite of the new owners names.
